Re: NTP - no server suitable for synchronization found

Re: NTP - no server suitable for synchronization found

That means that you cannot reach the NTP server. You should receive a result like this:

# ntpq -pn billbd1
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter

Possible causes are:

Firewall
Selected NTP server is not running the NTP service
Selected NTP server has restrict options in /etc/ntp.conf

Re: NTP - no server suitable for synchronization found

You should try to sync with an external server if you network allows you to, here's a list of open NTP servers:
http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/StratumOneTimeServers

Also, I do agree with Ivan. Make sure that you're allowed to connect to port 123 with UDP throu your internal linux firewall :)

Re: NTP - no server suitable for synchronization found

where you put the ntp server information?

Re: NTP - no server suitable for synchronization found

In your /etc/ntp.conf you can put a line looking like this:

server ntp1.sp.se prefer
server ntp2.sp.se

But what I would do is to try running:
$ ntpdate ntp1.sp.se

And see if you're allowed to change the time from an external source. This way you'll know if it's something wrong with your internal NTP service or if your linux box just isn't letting you set the time.
